Connecticut Governor Dannel P. Malloy on Friday called projections that the state is facing a $1.278 billion budget deficit next year “ridiculous,” according to Connecticut News Junkie, an online news source covering the State Capitol.
In the News Junkie article, Malloy disputes the numbers, and said the state doesn’t face a deficit. The Governor says the deficit is based on the state increasing spending by more than 7 percent next year, which he said won't happen, according to the News Junkie story.
He goes on to say he will not seek concessions from state employees next year if reelected, the article states.
